PetraCephas released the first version of his ARMSCor Mod on the Armaholic forums.
Quote : ARMSCor is a ARMA 3 mod that include Southern African military equipment, both locally developed and license build from 1966 to 2035. This has been a labour of love for a very long time and will be for a long time to come. This is only the beginning, so make sure to check out the "WorkInProgress" folder to see what we are currently working on. We have lots more to come.
In the extras folder you will find additional factions. Where South African weapons, vehicles or aircraft is also in use by other countries, I have included skinned versions of them on request. To use these you will need to copy the *.PBO and associated *.bisign files over to the Addons folder.
In the optional folders we have PBO files that you can choose to use if you so feel. To use these you will need to copy the *.PBO and associated *.bisign file over to the Addons folder.
Currently we have the SANDF faction replacement mod. This will replace some of the NATO factions soldiers, equipment & vehicles with SANDF equivalents. This is still experimental and incomplete so use at own risk. It can be undone by simply removing it from the Addons folder again.
Work In Progress:
This folder contains the mod elements that we are currently working on. They are incomplete and not ready for public release. If you want to have a play with them then feel free to use them at your own risk. To use these you will need to copy the *.PBO and associated *.bisign file over to the Addons folder.
Ovenmit informed us he released an updated version of the SA58 which he ported from Arma 2 on the BI forums.
Quote : I have ported one of my favourite weapons from Arma 2. Everything seems to be working as far as I can see. New muzzle system is in place.
I may still tweak the config based on comments or my own findings. I plan to make a new texture too in a future release.
Added Joint Rail support
Although it will work without ASDG Joint Rails it is strongly recommended you have it.
Blazenchamber released a new update on the Armaholic forums about the Specialist Military Arms mod.
Quote blazenchamber : This is a weapons and attatchments addon that will feture some really cool and unique models to the game for everyone to enjoy.
We currently have 11 new weapons, 9 assault rifles and one sniper all with variants of each weapon.
Each will have custom ammunition and sounds.
Zorrobyte released the Group Link 5 Special FX Edition on the BI forums.
Quote : To fully port GL4 to A3, special FX features included.
What are the differences between GL5 CORE and GL5 FX? GL5 CORE is AI only (GL5_System.pbo) for servers and those who use Blastcore, don't want FX, dubbing etc.
This Group Link 5 Special FX Edition is the full GL4 port including FX, dubbing, blood, burning buildings etc. Literally everything is here (although some may still be broken/buggy).
Since I use GIT and Forks, I work on the GL5 Core Repo (link) while Lordprimate works on the GL5 FX Repo (link). Any changes I make to the GL5 Core repo (updates, bugfixes, etc) get upstreamed (merged) into the GL5 FX repo.

ArMaTeC informed us about an interesting website which covers the ArmA2 political situation in real time.
Quote ArMaTeC : While Searching Google today for the old ANN news from arma1 I come across this rather neat informal website that seems to be covering the situations from A2's story in real-time I don’t know who created it. All the info on there is it was created by AAN Network and parent company.
Any way here is the link take a look let me know if you find any info out.
